Hold on. Turns out that some of the documents look like this:
Is that Japanese? Is that Simplified Chinese? Which character style does Taiwanese use again? It might be Korean… If you aren’t a native APAC reader, you know you are in over your head.
You start searching and clicking and very quickly that “some” turns into hundreds of documents… thousands… 65,000 and counting. Time to start sweating. Whether you’d planned for it or not, you’ve now migrated into foreign language document review (FLDR) territory. Welcome.
I wanted a certification that separates me from my peers. Upon discovering CEDS, I was convinced this was exactly the type of distinction I had been seeking. Since achieving CEDS certification, I’ve noticed immediate recognition from my organization, colleagues, and current and prospective clients.They acknowledge they are more comfortable working with a person who has taken time to seek such certification. CEDS has certainly been worth the small investment and should continue to beget returns for years and years to come.
